     Traffic remained steady at the complete review in March.
     Two new titles made it onto the list -- the Lorchenkov and the sure-to-be-much-discussed Robbe-Grillet -- and it was a rare month when the Murakami page was not the most popular author-page.

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 lists.
